The Anti-Vandalism Squad of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps(NSCDC), Oyo State Command, on Thursday, impounded a blue DAF Truck loaded with 33,000 litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), popularly known as petrol, belonging to Ibrolak Nigeria Limited, which was being diverted.
The squad, stationed at Kishi in Irepodun Local Government Area, impounded the truck with registration number APP 429 XV at about 7:20pm on Kishi-Kaiama road, towards Kaiama community in Kwara State.
The Public Relations Officer of the NSCDC, Oluwole Olusegun, in a statement on Sunday, said that the State Commandant of NSCDC, Michael Adaralewa, who disclosed this during a briefing with the Agro Rangers team at the command headquarters, Agodi, Ibadan, stated that the truck was impounded as a result of fake weigh bill and interstate documents presented, found to be illegal.
The Commandant said that the truck had been impounded at Kishi Divisional office of the NSCDC, pending the completion of investigation about the product and the owner.
Stressing that the Command would not tolerate any form of criminality, Adaralewa warned those who specialised in illegal dealings and diversion of petroleum products to desist from the act or face the wrath of the law.
He also advised youths against lawlessness, jungle justice, drugs, crime and criminality, adding that those in the habit of selling petroleum products such as AGO and PMS, in residential buildings in Ibadan should stop the actor be dealt with according to the law when caught.
The Commandant said: “It is better you change and do things right than to be caught and go to jail,” while he sought for more credible information from the public in order to stem the tide of insecurity in the state.
